God the marketing sucks
Idgaf if I sound like a complaining fan boy. This is getting a tad bit ridiculous. Oh let's post a "new" image that we have seen multiple times before in numerous forms.

Ughhh come on WB. My confidence is slowly slipping

Okay cool. That looks better...or course. I'm glad I got up today. Now give me a reason to stay up, WB, please.

I think they're releasing them after a certain number of "Likes". So if you have Facebook, "Like" away!

The marketing we have gotten has been good, we just need more. I can't stress how a good chunk of the general pop has no idea a new superman film is being released soon.
*sigh*

How soon do they need to know? How far in advance does the general pop plan their movie attendance schedule?

I wonder how authentic that page is. It just seems like some guy trolling us all.

The movement will now portray MOS as the poster child for abuse of VFX studios when thats nowhere near the case just because there's beef with Warner Bros. apparently bailing on R&H when they needed support before going bankrupt. It's funny how the poster thinks "it's just a week...thats nothing" when that does much more harm than good especially when studios go in heavy for opening numbers and if MOS were to fall below expectations they aren't going to attribute it to the movement anyway.

Still, any publicity is good publicity...right.

I feel like there is a lot of bad feelings from fans towards that shot of Superman in chains, whether it be subconscious or not. Not so much because it's old, mainly because of the horribly handled/obviously rigged "Retweet or share to unlock" game that so many of us participated in. That plus it makes for a crap poster.
